In advance of the awarding of the annual $25,000 Shaughnessy Cohen Prize for Political Writing this Wednesday, HuffPost Canada will be running excerpts from the five finalists. Today's is from authors Max and Monique Nemni's Trudeau Transformed, which promises to cause readers "to re-think much of what we thought we knew about the intellectual development of Canada's legendary Prime Minister between the pro-fascist sympathies of his youth to his entry into federal politics."
Max and Monique Nemni
Max and Monique Nemni are retired university professors who spent most of their working lives in Quebec. They were friends of Trudeau, who encouraged them to become the editors of Cité Libre magazine and agreed to let them write his intellectual biography. The first volume of their Trudeau biography won this prize in 2006. The Nemnis live in Toronto.
